“why should our iphones have more security than our pets do?”
In a world where our dogs are trained better in our mind than in reality, even the most perfect dog will give into the temptation of wondering off to smell the freshest fox poo on a walk or to find just the perfect tree to lift it’s leg on. In times like these, when our “Puppy 101” class training is hopeless and even the smell of Fido’s favourite treat is not doing the job of bringing him back, we all just wish we had a magic wand or a GPS tracker to get the little scoundrel back. Introducing Kippy, the GPS tracker for your pet. When your dog or cat has its Kippy collar on, you can track it movements directly from your smartphone, tablet or computer which means that the chances of losing Fido are slim and your sanity levels should start to rise (always a good thing!)
We received our Kippy from Doggy & Co who offer an online shopping experience unlike any other we have come across. Their aim is to use technology to provide a level of service to Dog owners that has so far only been hinted at on the internet. They offer a tailor made shopping experience that takes your dog breed, age and lifestyle into account (just like going to the local, friendly pet shop). We highly recommend you pay them at visit at Doggy & Co
The Kippy tracking device also works abroad (which is perfect for our many trips to France) and my dogs LOVE this product. It is easy to wear (even for Puppy Jester) and is not bulky or cumbersome. It comes in 3 different colours so should suit most peoples aesthetics.
The Kippy is so simple to use. We downloaded the app from the online store. It has a clean and easy to understand interface that helped us find Folly when she went off on an adventure with another pomeranian (seriously she has no loyalty at all!!!).
The Kippy app not only lets you see where your pet is on the map, but also gives you an inbuilt compass and directions to take to reach your missing pet. You also have the option to set up a virtual fence and receive an alert if your pet leaves the area that you selected.
We LOVE this and it is probably one of the best products we have tried this year. The only snag is that the service is currently only available in Europe, India and South Africa but I really hope that it expands to include North and South America soon.
When I was talking to fellow dog loving friend and entrepreneur about this product, her response was that every dog owner needed this, and why should our iphones have more security than our dogs?
In a dream world, we wish that our dogs all had perfect recall but let’s face it, mistakes happen and the price of a Kippy is high at £150, but what is the price of losing your dog?
